Now, the most relevant point to ponder here is why the cancer rates keep on increasing every year. All the fingers point to only one culprit, and that is the change in lifestyle! With the change in living standards and posh lifestyles, we have conveniently forgotten healthy eating habits. We have embraced the fast-food culture, packaged, and adultered foods. We have stopped to include exercises in our daily regime. The stressful lifestyle and lack of proper food and sleep due to the hectic work culture also add to the woes. All the above changes have hit hard on us and ushered in critical lifestyle diseases like cancer.
When it comes to mortality rates, the overall mortality rate per year due to cancer comes around 6.62 Lakhs. Though more number of women get affected by cancer, it is observed that more number of men die due to cancer. The mortality rate for men is 3.56 Lakhs and for women, it comes to 3.26 Lakhs.
